5 stars We don't have to discuss wether this album is worth listening. It is. The quarrels between the two camps "First side good second side bad" is misleading to potential audiences. This concept album has to be heard right through till the end. In my ears the second Part is even more dense and is culminating.The most important aspect to review this record in my opinion are the atmospheres and bizarre sounds used. This recording is so well arranged so beautifully designed that you can feel the breeze of genious in it. It is poetry come to notes and strange sounds. It's sometimes harsh, sometimes sweet and very sad. You don't expect that by a rock group, don't you. Peter Gabriels voice is more than a singing instrument. It is merging with other instruments, developing, shifting and changin sound even in the span of one single word. I never heard something similiar in pop. This is marvelous and shows that the engeneering crew was very inspired. Tony Banks didn't like this album. But I think it's another planet of modern music. The hardest Punk band can't beat "Back in NYC" and the softest german space people can't produce a "Hairless heart". This are the two poles. And in between - all you need is ears. An album - one of a kind. Five stars. We don't have more available.
